sandy we saw governor christy and president obama not just side by side but pracing each other for their common concern and shared focus and placing the needs of the people first and to ensure whatever needed to be done, would be done. for anybody who thought this natural disaster would be the kick in the pants to work together finally. something happened this afternoon that absolutely shatters that. a republican rally in the state of virginia featured governor mcdonnell. they were for senate candidate allen. he was a failure of a president whose reelection would be bad for virginia and bad for the united states. doesn't matter which side you look at if you take governor christy's view that president obama is the savior for new jersey or that he's an absolute failure. the fact is an act of god couldn't bring democrats and republicansing to in this country. that's why we need an independent in congress. >> congressman cicilline. >> thank you for hosting this debate. as this campaign comes to a close i want to thank the people of rhode island who shared their ideas with me in thi
out of afghanistan. i did not think there is much daylight between governor romney and president obama on the war. the real difference is on the economy. i will try to keep us out of war in syria and keep us out of the intifada -- out of pre-emptive war around the country. there are probably 10 of us who are reticent to give the president unlimited authority for war. they believe congress declares war and not the president. there are probably a few democrats who believe that. there is a bipartisan libertarian, constitutional caucus on war issues. i have been working hard with many on the other side. i worked with senator why then, and senator -- senator wyden and senator udall and others. >> some have indicated they think you will run for president in 2016. any interest in seeking higher office? >> that depends on what happens next tuesday or a week from tuesday. i want to be involved in the national debate. i want to transform the republican party that is -- into a party that is competitive in all 50 states. from the west coast and new england, we give up 150 electoral votes to begin

, by our governor, a veteran, by president obama, the u.s. chamber of commerce, and by everyone in congress trying to find a compromise. george allen stood outside and shook his fists and said, we do not want to support a compromise. we did not the fault, we got a bond downgrade. the reason for the downgrade was not the deal. it was that so many leaders light george were willing to stand up and play chicken with american finances. we can avoid these defense cuts. we can only avoid them with a compromise. the only compromise you have heard is repealed be affordable care act. it has already been tried. the has been a two-year litigation in the supreme court. that is not a compromise. >> could you address the mass of how you pay for it if you repeal? >> if we are talking about sequestration, let me point out what we need. [laughter] we need spending caps. a balanced budget amendment. as far as averting these cuts, the house of representatives and others passed a measure in may to avert these cuts. went over the senate. what have they done? nothing. they have not passed a budget in over 3.5 yea
. he continues to be a very popular figure here. host: president obama has a slight edge over governor romney in real clear politics in that state. and you can see the specific recent polls that have been taken, giving obama an edge in some of them and romney in others. now to akron, ohio, independent. caller: i will say this, i have already voted and i am independent, truly. i found it disgusting that mitt romney would stay in ohio to collect canned goods. if he truly believes we should be reliant on private enterprise when there's a disaster, why would he not take $5 million out of its own pocket and by the canned goods and continue on his way? instead he sends norm: to ohio to talk about what mitt romney says on abortion, which is not true. at the same time he is changing his game and changing every view. the president is doing his job. he is not claiming to do anything but his job. host: the front page of the boston globe shows the impact of the storm, millions reeling. and then this headline in the hartford current -- guest: the storm affected new hampshire as well, our fourth lar
it portrayed governor romney, showing president obama in one light and governor romney in another. tell us about the fallout from this. guest: had i been the photo editor of the newspaper, i would not have picked those photographs. i felt those photographs gave a message. if you look at the front page, you got a feeling the newspaper was trying to present a positive image of romney and of a negative image of obama. everybody i've spoken to has given me the same kind of feedback. it was a mistake for the newspaper to do that, a poor choice of gore made that decision. host: how much of the candidates visiting your state,, are the candidates visiting your state? how much attention is iowa getting on the ground? guest: all the attention we can handle. both candidates are here routinely several times a week, both of them, along with surrogates and along with their. running their there's not a single day that goes by in the state where we don't have a visit from a candidate, running mate, or significance forget. both candidates have made iowa a focal point. there are about nine states that are s

daylight between governor romney and president obama on the war. the real difference is on the economy. they're night and day on the economy and not that far apart from coming home from afghanistan. i will try to keep us out of war in syria, keep us out of preemptive war around the world and i will fight for these things and hopefully, i'll be able to convince governor romney campaignfully to come to my direction. within the republican senate caucus, you know, there's probably 10 of us now who are reticent to give the president unlimited authority for war. it doesn't sound like many, but it's 10 more than there used to be, i think, who believes that congress declares war, not the president, and there are probably a few democrats who believe that too, and so, i think there is actually a bipartisan sort of libertarian, but more constitutional caucus on war issues and i've been working hard with many on the other side, i worked with senator wyden, senator judall on issues of war to make it less likely that we get involved in another war. >> senator paul, your part father on his network, m
governor romney did it. he has a record of working on a bipartisan basis whereas barack obama has actually failed on being bipartisan. and governor romney again will be bipartisan on things like offshore drilling which are other good, high-paying jobs in virginia that mark warner supports. you will be able to have a president romney work with mark warner and george allen on a bipartisan basis to open up offshore drilling which he said he would do saidday one. those are not minimum-wage jobs. they are health care. you can get pensions. it could bring millions, even billions and against the capital of east coast for energy which governor mcdonnell wants to do. we want to partner with the legislature -- it supports it on a bipartisan basis as well as congressional leadership. but unfortunately barack obama and the democrat leadership and his party in virginia opposes the good common sense of sure drilling policies which mark warner, george alley -- george allen support. guest: why didn't you run for reelection in massachusetts? they can run for reelection. why is he losing by double digits, i
that going back to the 2008 cycle, both senator obama at the time and governor romney, spending time with the editorial board. we have talked to the candidates. we have really explore the issues. is our endorsement matter? i think it does. it has been a century at least that we have endorsed a presidential candidate. it is part of our tradition. politics is indeed dna of the des moines register. we take very seriously the first in the nation status as a caucus state. we take seriously the ability to affect candidates that are not on the radar screen until after they emerge from iowa. very informal opportunity to sit down over coffee to talk about what is in front of us. what is the position for that. i do think our endorsement matters. we probably spent a lot of time doing diligence and being thoughtful in all of our conversations, particularly the final one to support governor mitt romney. host: we are talking with the editor of the des moines register. let me ask you about the process. you had a telephone conversation that ran 30 minutes with the president. the white house said it

-span. president obama yesterday spent the afternoon with new jersey governor chris christi touring the damage across the state's coast left from hurricane sandy after surveying some of the wreckage and speaking with victims of the storm. both men spoke briefly about the coordination efforts between federal and local officials. >> good afternoon, everybody. thank you-all for coming today. i want to thank the members who are here as well. i want to thank the president. we spent significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together, to show the president that personally. we had an opportunity to discuss it at length. then going over to the shelter here, to be able to meet with folks, have them see the president and his concern. the concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. we have lots of challenges. our challenge now is to get back to normalcy. the things we need to do is make sure we get power restored as quickly as possible. make sure people have clean drinking water and wast
hurricane sandy. yesterday, president obama visit the state with governor chris christie and spoke about the federal government's in response to the disaster. this is 15 minutes. >> how are you, sir? what is your name? you have not gotten much sleep, have you? appreciate it. how're you? are you ok? we are going to help you. i promise. it is going to be ok. you are safe. that is the most important thing. i have my guide, craig fugate. i want to make sure she knows the week immediately give her the help she needs. how long have you left your? >> since 1996. we will get you some help. i promise. we have to prioritize. we want to make sure power is back on. make sure the streets are clear and the debris is gone. that is just one lot. we want to make sure small businesses are up and running. he is from florida. he is used to hurricanes. >> the governor asked the president to declare disaster. we make sure there are teams coming down here. i know there is a lot of agriculture here. i do not want to have you go to a lot of different outfits to find help. we will deal with some of the challenges
can do that with his track record as governor in massachusetts. president obama has not done that while he has been president. he did not have a resume going in as president so we really need a change in washington. host: are independent line, what do you think? caller: i do not think either one of them is a winner. going back the last six months, whoever gets elected, 47% of the population is not going to like him. it is going to be the same thing. it is going to be gridlock from now on because there is so much hate and madness. host: how do you get beyond it? caller: if we had the answer to that question, me and you could go get elected. i hate to say it but here we are. we are not going to get past the it. we are just going to suffer through it and keep on. it was the same thing it was yesterday. it was this way 100 years ago. go back and read history. host: that said, has it been successful to have this partisan conflict for this country? caller: is an formative. as long as people are educating themselves. you hear a lot of rhetoric from people. it i don't have to tell yo
between governor romney and president obama on the issue of what to do now, other than to get a little tougher. i figure that is not going to work. iran is going to get a nuclear weapon. i do not care how many centers to put in place. they are moving forward and have made that clear. i don't think either candidate has laid out what they would do and where there would be a red line. would you draw a bad -- a red line? netanyahu has asked for it, but neither of our candidates have said what they are going to do. russia is very different than it was four years ago. in their aspirations and what they are doing in trying to influence the region and change things. it is one of the reasons i do not think we should pull our troops out of japan and western europe. we made a deal with the japanese and the germans that if they did militarize we will be there if some of their more hostile neighbors are thinking of expansion. i do not think we want to militarize germany or japan. if we leave, that is what is going to happen. i do not think that is good for the world. should the united states played
and his remarks on president obama? guest: governor sununu is a knowledgeable former governor of new hampshire. he was chief of staff for herbert walker bush. he knows national politics and has been doing quite a bit of television on behalf of the republican party. a very smart man, very well respected. certainly, anyone in politics who is on television a lot and is commenting sometimes may or may not say something that they regret. i am not going to judge each one of his remarks, but -- host: has it had an impact on the new hampshire voter? guest: is very well-respected in new hampshire, which is maybe one reason why he has been up front for the republican party. he is among people in new hampshire would tend to listen to. the senator is very popular, and our outgoing governor, the president pass campaign used him in advertising because he is so popular. he has been on the stage with the president. they are using surrogates like that. i think that the president's campaign is very smart to use some of these people like the senator, who is more of a centrist democrat, favorable with i
obama. and for governor walker we had a huge debate over the recall of governor walker. economy and jobs were center to that debate but the bottom line is that sort of somewhat sluggish job growth, some positive trends in manufacturing but nothing that would i think either disqualify the president or ensure his reelection. host: looking at individual people in wisconsin, how does the state breakdown when it comes to republicans, democrats and independents? guest: we don't have registration by party. it is a swing state that's why we're talking about it. it's voted democratic in every election since reagan was on the ballot. it's misleading because it's close to where the country is as a whole. it was the closest state in the country in 2004. it was even closer in 2,000 than it was 2004. but you had this blow out victory for president obama in 2008. democrats have tended to dominate the u.s. senate elections but we had a big republican tiedle wave in 2010. if they win the senate seat this november, it will be the first time since the 1950's we've had two republican senators so it's a stat
at the other end of the specter. kind of in that gray area for president obama and also for governor walker. we just had a huge, fierce debate over the recall of governor walker. the economy and jobs were central to that debate. a lot of conflicting, police statistics. the bottom line is that sort of somewhat sluggish job growth, positive trends in manufacturing, but nothing that would i think either disqualify the president or insure his reelection. host: looking at individual people in wisconsin, how does the state breakdown when it comes to republicans, independents, democrats? guest: we don't have registration by party, so you just look at the political history. wisconsin as a swing state. it has voted democratic for president in every election since ronald reagan was on the ballot. a little misleading, though, because it is often extremely close, often very close to where the country is as a whole. it is the closest aide and the country into a dozen for, even closer in 2000. but you had this big blowout victory for president obama in 2008. democrats have tended to dominate the u.s. senate
attracted attention because of the way it portrays president obama and the way it portrayed governor romney, showing president obama in one light and governor romney in another. tell us about the fallout from this. guest: had i been the photo editor of the newspaper, i would not have picked those photographs. i felt those photographs gave a message. if you look at the front page, you got a feeling the newspaper was trying to present a positive image of romney and of a negative image of obama. everybody i've spoken to has given me the same kind of feedback. it was a mistake for the newspaper to do that, a poor choice of gore made that decision. host: how much of the candidates visiting your state,, are the candidates visiting your state? how much attention is iowa getting on the ground? guest: all the attention we can handle. both candidates are here routinely several times a week, both of them, along with surrogates and along with their. running their there's not a single day that goes by in the state where we don't have a visit from a candidate, running mate, or significance forget. both c
have any questions, you have folks in the back wearing obama for america buttons -- you are all wearing obama buttons -- wearing obama for america buttons that can tell you how to do it. folks, the president had his third and final debate with governor romney and i had my one debate with congressman ryan. [cheers and applause] you know, that last debate, i was not sure whether governor romney was there to endorse obama or debate obama. it was kind of amazing. all of those things i heard him say before, i did not hear him say again. my grandfather from scranton used to say be where -- beware of the converted. he sure sounded converted, didn't he, during that debate? what happened to mitt romney? as my granddaughter might say, maybe casper the friendly ghost took him. i don't know. [laughter] look, i hear is the truth. they have made it very clear they do not have the same view on women's rights as we do. on women's health, they want to give the power back to the insurance companies were they can charge 50% more than men. when the governor was asked in the second debate, how do you feel a
governor romney was going to endorse president obama. we roman catholic say that boy had an epiphany. governor romney went from sank it was a mistake we did not leave 30,000 troops in iraq. he sounded like he was against the war from the beginning. i was amazed. he went from labeling russia last year as the single greatest geopolitical threats to the united states and even opposed the new gun control treaty that every republican said to push that, he said he would not have supported it. all of a sudden we can work with russia. you know that. did you hear that? i thought, turn that tv up. he is now putin's best friend. when as in the second debate what would you commit to, he said it depends. with these guys it depends on everything. it always depends who they're talking to or where they are. it depends on what the vote is. it always depends. i am from pennsylvania. the grandfather always said be aware of the convertists. one issue they cannot bring themselves to say they now agreed with us on was issues relating to women. think about it now. they are ready to jettison foreign-policy
obama visited the state with governor chris christie and spoke about the government's response to the disaster. this is 15 minutes. >> good afternoon, everybody. i want to thank the members that are here. i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together, surveying the damage up and down the coast line. we wanted to show the president that personally. we have the opportunity to discuss it. and over to the shelter and meet with folks and have them see the president and his concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. we have a lot of challenges. things we need to do to make sure we get power restored as quickly as possible, that people have clean water, hospitals are taking care of things they need to when we get kids back to school. i discussed all those issues with the president and i am pleased to report he has sprung into action immediately to give us those things while we were in a car together. i want to thank him for that. he has worked with me since before the storm. this is our sixth conversation si
welcome president barack obama and governor mitt romney. gentlemen, your campaigns have agreed to certain rules and they are simple. they have asked me to divide the evening into segments. i'll pose a question at the beginning of each segment. you will each have two minutes to respond, and then we will have a general discussion until we move to the next segment. tonight's debate, as both of your know, comes on the 50th anniversary of the night that president kennedy told the world that the soviet union had installed nuclear missiles in cuba -- perhaps the closest we've ever come to nuclear war. and it is a sobering reminder that every president faces at some point an unexpected threat to our national security from abroad. so let's begin. the first segment is the challenge of a changing middle east and the new face of terrorism. i'm going to put this into two segments, so you'll have two topic questions within this one segment on that subject. the first question, and it concerns libya, the controversy over what happened there continues. four americans are dead, including an american ambass

obama at the time as well as governor romney coming through iowa. spending time with the editorial board. we've talked with the candidates, we've explored and scrutinized the platforms and their various positions. are there endorsements that matter, i think it do. it's part of our tradition. we take very seriousing, first in the nation status of caucus state. we take serious able to vet candidates. many of whom really not on the national radar screen until after they emerge from iowa. it's a place where you have formal interviews, formal meetings inquestions and answers and issues and campaigns. as well as very informal opportunity to sit down to talk about what's in front of us in terms of americans. what are the different positions for that. i do think our endorsement matters. we proudly spent a lot of time very diligent, very thoughtful and all of our conversations particularly the final one to make the decision to support governor romney. >> we talking to rick green the editor of the des moines register. let me ask you about that process. you had a television conversation that ran a
obama said he's put out phone calls to governors and spoken with them. and there is more information about that. we'll hear more about that later in the program. charles joins us now from north carolina on our republican line. caller: i just want to call about the hurricane. i feel like it's going to devastate new york city. but the same people need to stop and sernl their hearts about if president obama is re-elected it's going to devastate this country. so that's something we all need to think about because i'm 53 years old and i've never seen an administration run like this one has been run. everybody knees to talk about ben goss by. fox is the only one talking about it. everybody else is raking it off to the side. host: janet independent caller good morning. caller: i'm calling pped in and i'm shocked that i got in because i try just about every morning. i don't know why everyone is interested about this impact on the election. but i feel like the president jumped in there right away and this is something we haven't ever seen from him. so i guess maybe sooner or later he does lea
not be the result it should compel all elected leaders to take action. governor bloomberg rates we need leadership from the white house. president obama has taken major steps to reduce our current consumption, including higher fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks. he notes that mitt romney, too, has a history of toppling climate change. he signed onto a regional cap and trade plan that would reduce carbon emissions. he could not be more right, but since then he has reversed course, abandoning the very program he once supported. this issue is too important. we need leadership of the national level to move the world and nation forward. that is michael bloomberg endorsing president obama over the issue of climate change and the hurricane sandy fallout. lots of news stories coming from the fallout. the hurricane death toll has been rising. the hurricane sandy death toll now above the 90 and rising as emergency workers canvas flood and fire-ravaged neighborhoods. police say at least 59 people were killed during a storm in new york city and a new jersey. , and security secretary and fema deputy
, for president obama and also in -- for governor walker, we just had a huge fierce debate over the recall of governor walker. economy and jobs were central to that debate. a lotve of conflicting and duelg statistics, but the bottom linet that you know, sort of somewhat sluggish job growth, some positive trends in manufacturing. but nothing that would i think, either disqualify the president or ensure his reelection. >> looking at individual people there in wisconsin, how does the state break down when it comes to republicans, independents, democrats?e >> we don't have registration bt party, so you really have to just look at our political history. wisconsin is obviously a swing state, that's why we're talking about it. it's voted democratic for president since -- in everyng election since ronald reagan was on the ballot. a little misleading though,es because it's oftenid extremely close and often very close to t sort of where the country is as a whole. it was the closest state in the country in 2004, was even closer in 2000 than it was in 2004, but you had this sort of big blowout victory

president obama. we roman catholic say that boy had an epiphany. governor romney went from sank it was a mistake we did not leave 30,000 troops in iraq. he sounded like he was against the war from the beginning. i was amazed. he went from labeling russia last year as the single greatest geopolitical threats to the united states and even opposed the new gun control treaty that every republican said to push that, he said he would not have supported it. all of a sudden we can work with russia. you know that. did you hear that? i thought, turn that tv up. 10putin's best friend. -- putin's best friend. when as in the second debate what would you commit to, he said it depends. with these guys it depends on everything. it always depends who they're talking to or where they are. it depends on what the vote is. pends.ays defe i am from pennsylvania. the grandfather always said be ists. of the convert tes one issue they cannot bring themselves to say they now agreed with us on was issues relating to women. think about it now. they are ready to jettison foreign-policy to win this election.

to are likely to change the outcome. romney and obama are in their own environment and will be decided on issues and personality and candidate quality separate to that. host: a history of eight years of the democratic state house. governor ridge, governor rendell -- they were elected republican senators in the state, including rick santorum, and now split between pat to me and bob casey, running for reelection areit is pretty divid state when it comes to elected officials. guest: that is right. we're a quintessential swing state -- neither party is capable of the state level of winning elections. the democrats went through the state in 2006 and 2008, what we called the iraq war alexian, local ratings for president bush. 2008, the recession election, then 20 can they swept back into control of the governorship and both houses of the state -- in 2012 republicans swept back into the governorship and both houses. the biggest edge -- the biggest at any party has had since the 1950's. senator toomey, former congressman now senator, elected as well. the governor elected by 9%. statewide elections -- we

reasons. the first, president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state back on track. but we know that's not true. it's the work that the governor and i have done with all of you to balance our budget and get our state back on track. we didn't raise taxes, we cut taxes. [applause] here is my second reason and this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18-year-old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago before a friday night football game his friend were at our house and they were in his room and i decided i wonder when they're talking about, girls, the football game t next concert they're going to go to, maybe kid rock. but i went upstairs and i was listening outside the door and they didn't know i was there. they were talking about this election because they know their future is is riding on four more days. if i could talk to the women in the audience. and i see there are just a few women here tonight. you know the democrats have talked a lot lately about this war on women. let me tell you what i think
as president obama, last night, after consultations with the governors, granted a disaster declaration for emergency measures for some of the counties that were most heavily impacted. this is extraordinary in that we generally do more thorough assessments and it is often taking longer but because of the extent of the damage, it was evident to the president he would do this as a verbal declaration. we have only done this once before in america send note -- samoa. we are working with utility companies on power restoration, the department of energy and other agencies are working closely with the governors as we are working on the various issues that have come up and continue to come on. -- up. >> let me take -- turn it over to the hurricane center. >> good afternoon. we have a post-tropical cyclone over western pennsylvania right now. it is still a large system, as it always has been. it has been impacting the u.s. the coastal in packs are certainly less today than they were last night. -- impacts are certainly less today than they were last night. they are certainly not zero. given that,
romney, get hired. vote for obama, get fired. host: if you had any thoughts on the comments from the viewer in ohio? guest: we had ann romney with our lieutenant governor. strong smell has been a pretty solid republican area -- strongsville has been a pretty solid republican area. host: let me ask you in the two and a half minutes we have left. what are you going to be watching for on election night in ohio? what returns are you most interested in? guest: we have a couple of swing in counties, bellwethers within the bellwether. lake county is just east of cuyahoga county along the lake. they usually turn in results first and then have often predicted that president. i am going to look there and in central ohio. there is stark county. they are usually a nice bellwether. we are going to see totals all across the state immediately with early voting totals and absentee ballots because those are processed and recorded but are not tallied. it is the push of a button. we will get a sense of where things are immediately and i think that will probably wherever that is leaning will likely
. it recounted that barack obama as a democrat won for president by 10 points and scott walker as governor in a june run by -- won by 20 or 30 points. very competitive, ticket splitters. those are the county's to what in northeastern wisconsin and central wisconsin and western wisconsin, election day. >> how does early voting factor into election day? >> we do not have the same tradition. it is in growing but not the same level. technically known as in person absentee voting or mail absentee voting. the wendy a speedy the window -- the window it is a little more difficult. i cannot think we can say with confidence to us the advantage in the early voting in wisconsin. but the early vote will be significant but not at the label -- level of a state like colorado. >> are voters required to show i.d.? >> a law was passed under republicans after they took power in 2010 to do that but it has been held up in court. so they will not be required to show photo i.d. in this election. >> what are the systems in place within the state and what is used at the state level to make sure the systems are pals

of weeks. i have three simple reasons. i would like to go through them quickly with you. president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state to back on track. we know that is not true. it is the work governor kasich and i have done with to balance the budget and get our state back on track. but we did not raise taxes. we cut taxes. here is my second reason. this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18 years old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago his friends were gathering at our house. i decided, i wonder what they are talking about. girls, the football game, the next concert they will go to. i went upstairs, i was just listening outside the door. they did that know i was there. they were talking about the election. they know their future is riding on four more days.

on there website. you had a different face to face meeting with governor mitt romney. did any of them make a difference? caller: initially the white house had asked for an off the record five or 10 minute conversation. we protested. i spoke with the obama campaign and said, this should be on the record. they said they would try to get it on the record, but we never heard back. the next day we had a conversation with the president, it was so important. when he talked about needed to be shared. that was the reason for the call that i had written. did it play a role in the decision making? absolutely not. i said at the time, considering what unfolded at the white house and the campaign staff, as it related to transparency -- we had met several days before that incident and the direction we wanted to go with the editorial. it was already kind of drafted. it did not have a central role at all with where we were. host: the published past editorials over the past 100 years. the first endorsement was william howard taft in 1912. more recently, you have to go back to 1972, the last time your newspa
